Throttle Sticks After Steady Driving In Cold/snow Because Of ford‘s Poor Design, They Even State It In ford Article No. 01-21-5. Has Happened May Times To Me. I Just Finally Got An Answer To The Problem. The Fix Is Over 500.00, And I Don’t Have The Money. It Is Their Poor Design, This Just Does Not Seem Fair. I Have Had Several Close Calls Due To This Problem, There Really Should Be A Recall On This. *tr

While Driving On The Freeway, I Heard A Loud Pop From The Engine Compartment Followed By The Engine Running Roughly And Accompanied By Popping Sounds. Within 10 Seconds, The Smell Of Gasoline Was Noticed. I Pulled Off At The Next Exit, Approximately 30 Seconds Later, And Came To A Stop. As I Came To A Stop, Flames Erupted From The Hood And The Entire Engine Compartment Was Engulfed In Flames. A Fire Truck Arrived Within A Few Minutes And Extinguished The Fire, But Not Before The Fire Had Burned Through The Firewall Into The Passenger Compartment. The Vehicle Was A Total Loss. Upon Further Inspection, It Was Discovered That The #8 Cylinder Spark Plug Had Ejected From The Cylinder (the Initial Pop Sound) With Such Force That It Ruptured The Rubber fuel Line Immediately Above It And Aft Of The Stainless fuel Injector Bar. With fuel Spraying From The Hose, It Was Then Ignited By The Coil Which Was Still Attached To The Engine And Emitting Sparks. It Has Been Documented That The Cylinder Head Design In This Vehicle Has Had A History Of Problems With Ejecting Spark Plugs Due To A Lack Of Adequate Threads In The Spark Plug Holes. I Believe This Defect Contributed Directly To This Fire And Is A Safety Hazard. *tr

The Gas Tank Strap On My 2001 f-150 Rusted Completely Through. The Tank Has 2 Straps Holding The Tank Up Inside The Frame. The Front One Was Intact And The Rear Strap Rusted Completely In Two. My Friend Noticed My Gas Tank Was Hanging Down Slightly And I Was Shocked To See The Condition Of The Rear Strap. I Drove Home Slow Avoiding Potholes,etc. And Called An Auto Parts Store To Order A New Strap. I Wanted To Go With A ford Part But They Only Came As A Set And Cost Much More Than The Auto Parts Store. I’m Concerned Someone May Not Notice This Condition Until Their Gas Tank Goes Rolling Down The Highway. *tr

On Friday, September 17, 2010 The fuel Tank On My 2001 ford f-150 Truck Broke Free Of The Undercarriage And Was Dragged Approximately 200 Meters Before I Could Safely Stop The Vehicle. At The Time Of The Incident, I Was Traveling 60 Mph. Upon Exiting The Vehicle, I Smelled Strong Gasoline Fumes And Observed Gasoline Running From Underneath The Truck. I Moved Away From The Vehicle And Called The Fire Department And A Tow Service. From A Distance (approximately 150 Feet) The Gasoline Tank Was Clearly Resting On The Road Surface. Once Help Was On The Scene, Granular Absorbent Material Was Added To The Gasoline Which Had Spilled Onto The Road. The Now Empty Gas Tank Was Secured By Rope To The Truck Undercarriage, Revealing A Large Hole In The Gas Tank. Upon Further Investigation, It Was Noted That The Straps Holding The Tank Had Broke. The Truck Was Removed From The Scene On A Flat-bed Truck.

I Have A 2001 ford F150 Crewcab Truck. On My Way Home From Work, My Vehicle Started Making An Awful Noise And The Truck Instantly Started Working Rough. I Pulled Over And Turned Off The Truck. My Husband Came To Check On Me And When We Popped The Hood And When I Turned On The Truck He Saw The Spark Plug Coming Out Of The Cylinder. I Have Yet To Have The Mechanic Look At It. After Reading Up On This, I See This Is A Recurrent Problem On ford Trucks. I Do Not Understand Why Nothing Has Been Done Regarding This Matter. I Simply Do Not Have The Funds Available To Pay For This If It Is A Major Repair Job Nor Do I Have The Means To Purchase Another Vehicle Due To The Current Economic State And Were Barely Getting By As It Is. I Want Something To Be Done And This Issue With ford Investigated Further. It Is A Design Flaw And This Is Getting Ridiculous. Do Someone Have To Die In Order For Something To Be Done. Thank God I Did Not Pick My Kids Up Yet . Thank God I Was Just Starting Off From A Light And Hadn’t Even Got Back Up To 20 Mph. Thank God It Happens To Me And Not My Husband That Drove Out To Orlando Today And Was Going To Use My Truck. He Would Have Been Severely Hurt Or Worse If This Occurred At 70+mph. I Have Read That This Could Cost In The Thousands And When I Get An Estimate I Will Update This Matter Further. Something Has To Be Done, There Are No More Excuses. *tr

After Purchasing This Used 4wd f-150 I Filled The Tank And Noticed The Smell Gasoline. Inspection Of The fuel System Revealed The Rear Gas Tank Support Strap Had Rusted Through. This Allowed The Tank To Drop Down And Rest On The Rock Guard For The Tank. Operation Of The Truck In This State Caused Vibrations To Wear Through The Tank Resulting In The fuel Leak. Were It Not For The Rock Guard (on 4wd Models Only) The Tank May Have Fallen Off Or At A Minimum Left Hanging From The Front Strap And The fuel Line Connections.

Yesterday, While Driving At About 35 Mph I Hear A Loud Noise From The Bottom Of The Vehicle. I Pull Over To Realize That The Entire Gas Tank Had Completely Fallen Off Of The Bottom Of The Truck, Had Punctured, And Was Spilling Over 20 Gallons Of fuel Into The Road. The Fire Department Was Called And Spent Two Hours Containing The Spilled fuel And Assisting The Tow Truck Driver To Ready The Truck So That It Could Be Safely Towed. The Metal Gas Tank Straps Had Completely Rusted Through And Broke Leaving The Tank Hanging On By Only A Couple Of Screws. The Tank Had To Be Fully Removed From The Truck Before That Tow Truck Driver Could Safely Tow The Truck To Be Repaired. This Truck Is Only A 2001 Model And Only Has 75,000 Miles On It. This Could Have Been A Very Serious Situation Given The Amount Of fuel That Spilled And That It Occurred On A Busy Intersection. Thankfully There Was No Spark From The Tank When It Hit The Ground! I Think Given The Serious Nature Of This Malfunction ford Really Needs To Consider Taking A Look At Their Trucks Built In This Model Year. Especially Since This Occurred With Such A Low Mileage Vehicle Given It’s Age. *tr

While Driving At Residential Speed The Gas Tank Dropped Down And Began Dragging On The Ground Spilling All The Gasoline Contents.

Approaching The Exit Ramp Off The Freeway I Heard A Dragging Sound, Thought It Was My Muffler. I Pulled Over And Got Out And Smelled Gas, (just Filled The Tank At 4.19 Gal Day Before) And Saw The Front Of The Gas Tank Was Dropped And Gas Was All Over. Had To Call The Fire Department To Put Oil Dry Or Something On The Ramp. I Was Fortunate That It Didn’t Spark And The Truck Blew Up. A Few Days Prior We Just Got Back From A Trip To See The Grandkids In Upstate New York. We Drove Around Ny With These Children In The Truck. It Gives Me Shivers To Think If This Would Have Happened And A Spark We Could Have Lost Our Lives And Our Grandchildren. This Is A Very Dangerous Problem And I Guess ford Has Known About This And Will Not Take Responsibility. We Had To Have The Truck Towed And A New fuel Tank, Vent Valve, fuel Pump Module, Pressure Sensor And New fuel Tank Straps. The Rusting Out Of The fuel Tank Straps Is What Caused The Gas Tank To Drop. Our Total For This Repair Was 1,674.97. I Would Think This Is A Serious Safety Issue With The Straps To A Gas Tank Rusting Out. ford Does Not Have A Recall On This And I Think They Should.

I Have Not Seen This Posted Anywhere. I Have Received The ford Recall For The fuel Tank Straps. My Local Dealership Called Me When I Took The Truck In For The Repairs And Said My fuel Tank Is Leaking. The fuel Leak Is Right Behind Or Around The Rear Tank Strap. I Do Have Pictures If Anyone Wants To See It. The ford Dealership Didn’t Hesitate To Tell Me That It Was Not Part Of The Recall And Gave Me A Quote To Replace It. I Feel It Should Be Added To The Recall Procedure. It Sure Seems Likely That The Rusted Strap Caused The Rust And Eventually Caused The Leak. Now I Have A Truck That Shouldn’t Be Driven, Won’t Pass State Inspection And ford Says I’m On The Hook For A New fuel Tank. They Know They Have A Problem And Should Step Up To The Plate And Look Into This Some More. I’m Not The Only Guy That Has This Same Problem. *tr
